There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

This would be a wonderful option to have on Limewire because of the obscene amount of bandwidth downloading takes.My internet can't handle anything else while Limewire's downloading stuff, and i know other people who have the same problem. It would be great to have Limewire wait until a time that nobody is using the internet to download the songs i had picked out earlier in the day.

Exactly ,

What made me think of this idea , is when u have someone using the internet and u dont wish to bother him with downloading , u just que it for 2 hrs, and u can leave without having to come back and start the download manually.

I hope limeWire Developers Work on this Feature Soon For us Pro Members

That would be a good idea because a lot of people that have Isp that are Throttling or caps or Fubs in sertin time of days that would work for some people but not every one.

Thats my Two cents.

Default Scheduled Searches and or Downloads

Many of us in this small world of ours are getting ripped off by the satelite ISP The main reason is because Hughesnet limits our downloads to just 250 MB (depending on the plan) per 24 hour period. And get this, all for low the cost of only $89.99 bucks per month. What a deal for BFTD (Barely Faster Than Dialup) speed. But Hughenet has us by the private parts becuase we live in the country or we may be in the millitary on deployment over-seas. In all fairness, Hughesnet claims to have plans to launch their own satelite in early 2009 that will greatly clear up network congestion.

Now... currently there is one great thing about Between the hours of 3:00 AM and 6:00 AM EST; Anything goes. Unlimited downloads!!! Get in as much as you you can because at 6:00 AM EST the doenload clock starts ticking again. Limewire, we love and we would love you even more if you would give us the ability to search and schedule our downloads.

I'm sure you have already thought of this idea and yes I understand some of the limitations but why not BETA it and see how it goes.

When will I schedule my Limewire downloads? You guesed it; at 3:00 AM.

I also have Hughesnet because I live in the country. I feel like they take advantage of us by putting a limit on downloads. No other internet service does this. If I could get a different service, I would. So I would like to be able to schedule my downloads. Limewire please help us out. Give us the option to schedule downloads.Thanks.

Sorry folks, but I believe you're asking for the impossible.

Remember, LW is a p-p program; you cannot download from someone who is not on-line. And there is no way to know who will be on-line hours from now.

You certainly would not want LW to conduct a search for a file and then choose which one to download for you, unless you want lots of spam.
